Let me just say that I approve of Yann Martel’s The Life of Pi being adapted by Ang Lee. He makes such visually arresting films and this one looks like it will be no exception. Perhaps even more so, since it will be released in 3D. It looks absolutely breathtaking. If you haven’t already read… READ MORE »

Filmmaker Bjorn Floki first became acquainted with James William Ross IV when he won “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — as drag fabulous Tyra Sanchez. He later came to know Ross as not just a crowd-pleasing performer, but also as a father. Ross is the father of a six-year-old boy named Jeremiah, and navigates his double life… READ MORE »

High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I’m not talking about, say, “The Devil Wears Prada” (though I will never not argue that it’s one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Martin… READ MORE »

I may be over 30, but that doesn’t make me too old to  hold out hope for a Daddy Warbucks style adoption, right? So what if I own the “Annie” commemorative plate series or can still quote dialogue from the film? “First the windows, then the floors … in case I drip.” Even I knew… READ MORE »

Fifty-one-year-old Illinois woman, ArLynn Presser, has taken to telling herself how normal she is. Well, maybe not normal. But not so strange in comparison to other people. That’s what she learned this year. Her 2010 New Year’s resolution was to attempt to conquer her agoraphobia by endeavoring to meet all 335 of her Facebook friends… READ MORE »

The final countdown to the “Arrested Development” film (and television season) is here! After five years sans Bluth, it’s good to know that my time spent practicing the chicken dance and asking strangers to “babysit me” wasn’t all for naught.  We only have to wait one more year before the filming begins. In the meantime,… READ MORE »

The film experience I’ve been longing for is here! “American Juggalo” is Sean Dunne’s short documentary filmed at this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around this misunderstood subculture. I know they paint their faces, drink Faygo, listen to “horror rap,” and are “down with the clown until dead… READ MORE »

Right now I am rocking the “True Romance” but thinking about buying a pair of “Annie Halls.” This season I want to go a little more bohemian and a little less cokehead. What style are you rocking this season? [NY Times] … READ MORE »

What do Hurricane Irene and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” have in common? They both are going to take the box office by storm. Well maybe not. But together, they make a good joke. Our apologies to Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. Nothing personal. [Urlesque] … READ MORE »

In honor of her upcoming film, “The Future” (which I predict I will love based on the trailer), Miranda July has created an interactive web oracle wherein she divines your future via a colorful spinning wheel. While she understands that we may be super skeptical of this new form of divination, she encourages us to… READ MORE »

I did indeed see Jerry O’Connell get his manhood bitten off on the waters of Lake Havasu in “Piranha 3D.” Thank you to Amelia for convincing me to go. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As I watched this piece of highbrow film magic, I suspected that a sequel was probable. But is it possible to top… READ MORE »

Oscar-nominated actor, performance artist, writer, aspiring film director, Yale Ph.D student, and now … college professor. James Franco does it all!

Running through the woods, jumping in slow motion, kissing in front of stained glass, driving off into the blinding sun, and voila! “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is magically transformed into an indie coming-of-age film. It’s a wonder what editing and some instrumental music can do. [The Daily What] … READ MORE »

“Yeah — ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Black Swan’… ladies getting it on! They’re all different movies and it’s done differently; I think Greenberg’s use of [oral sex] is the most comedic, because there’s something so funny about people hooking up for the first time and he immediately goes down on her … I think, I hope, it’s… READ MORE »

The Ouija board has been the preferred form of occult entertainment for middle school sleepovers throughout time.
